Annual Fundraising Campaign 2019 – 2020 : 140 years, forever young!

GIVE, SO THAT OUR MOTHERS CAN REALIZE THEIR DREAMS .

Isolated, with very little support… How was I going to take care of my pregnancy and unborn baby? This question haunted me and often brought me to the brink of tears. Fortunately, I came across the Dispensary team. They welcomed me with open arms, considered me as a member of their family and came to my aid, without judging my status. What a pleasure it is to introduce you to my youngest, who is very healthy! “, as told by one of the mothers I met during one of the Dispensary activities.

Testimonies like this one are commonplace at the Dispensary. They are made possible thanks to the generosity of our donors, like you, who make a donation and support the interventions we carry with pregnant women in difficulty, so that they can nourish themselves adequately during their pregnancy and give birth to healthy babies. A good start in life!

Mrs. Bonneau, please tell your donors to continue their financial contribution, or to give even more if necessary, because I only wish for many all mothers to benefit from the free Dispensary services like I have, for them to look for a bright future and reach unexpected heights with their children and family! “, as shared to me by another happy mother, a statement I am proud to share with you, dear donors.

Thank you for giving, especially this year, as we celebrate our 140th anniversary. Your donation is needed more than ever before: some of our services including the outreach interventions we wish to offer to vulnerable pregnant women excluded from the health cares ystem are at risk of falling.

$140,000: 140 BABIES IN GOOD HEALTH!

Each $1,000 raised gives the Dispensary the financial means to provide a pregnant woman in need with social nutrition interventions, to help her give birth to a healthy baby: counselling and nutritional support (consultations with a nutritionist coupled with dietary supplements), group activities (preparing for labour, breastfeeding, positive parenting practices, attachment, healthy cooking with a budget, introduction to complementary foods, etc.), drop-in day care services and community and social support.

EVERY DONATION COUNTS!

It is the sum of the donations that will allow to the Dispensary’s families the possibility to climb unexpected heights. Thank you for giving to the height of your means and help us reach our goal of $140,000.

Thank you for allowing our mothers to fully realize their dreams: to live a fullled pregnancy, give birth to a healthy baby and see it grow with a hopeful future.

Note: A single solicitation campaign will be carried by the Dispensary between November 18th, 2019 and March 31st, 2020. The current campaign is therefore aimed at donors who usually give during the Holiday season, as well as donors who give during our annual campaign. Thank you.
